October 30, 2015 – Halloween Music Special

Happy Halloween boils and ghouls! It’s time for us here at The Arcade to celebrate the season of ghosts, goblins, and candy by shelving the video game talk for one week to bring you a hearty helping of Halloween-appropriate songs on our annual Halloween Music Special! Despite what commercial radio would have you believe, there are more Halloween songs out there than Thriller and the Monster Mash, and we’ve brought some of them together on this year’s show.  Our playlist ranges all the way from Elvira to King Diamond, remixes of 90’s kids TV show themes to German power metal about a Stephen King novel, and songs from Broadway musicals to a song about the Great Old One himself, Cthulhu!  So tune in and let us be your soundtrack for this scary season.  As always, we encourage you to follow the iTunes links below to purchase these songs for yourself, to enjoy at Halloween and beyond.
